Many, many years ago I ran across this little technique buried in the back of a craft magazine. I thought it was a wonderful technique, and thought it deserved more attention. I looked thoroughly to see if there was an author (stealing other’s work is bad Karma), and couldn’t find one. I also have never seen it shown again – so I created this short little tutorial to keep this technique alive. – I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This is a fun little project that takes only 5, 10 minutes at the most, and you have a wonderful pendant ready to go….
An awesome focal bead you’ve been dying to use. Accent beads of your choice. A length of heavy gauge ½ round wire twice the length of your focal and accent beads, plus 2”. Use the heaviest wire that will fit through your beads when it’s doubled. Round andsquare will also work in a pinch.
large round nose pliers or round mandrel or round wooden dowel
